Ivan is often sleeping on a cat tree when folks come to visit the Amarillo SPCA. He is not overly interactive and folks often pass him by. Ivan may not be for everyone because he probably won’t follow you around or jump on your lap for attention. But he’s a really cool fellow! Minds his own business, has good manners, uses his box, isn’t picky about food and enjoys napping. He doesn’t want a lot of petting and brushing, but a little bit is welcome and sometimes he will come to you for a few pets as well. If you are interested in an independent cat--read on!
